    Going downhill

    Member Service Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsPay is decent and benefits are better than most jobs I've had. Training is well done.

    ConsNew management (from banks) is bringing the bank culture into the credit union. Heavy sales pushes, people literally looking over your shoulder. The feeling down at many branches that I'm familiar with is souring quickly. This is no longer an institution that I recommend to anyone for jobs or personal banking.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop trying to push sales so much - the branches are getting very strained and members are noticing. We're becoming more like banks with the aggressive growth initiatives. Put the focus back on member service, not just wrapping up sales in "member service" talk.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Financial Services Representative (FSR)

    Financial Service Representative (Current Employee)

    ProsI thankfully work at a branch with a great branch manager. If you work hard, the commissions are not bad. Benefits and paid time off is pretty good.

    ConsCompany does not hire from within. No career growth or upward momentum. The only people who move around are the tellers... to FSR... if they are lucky. If you apply for any other position, you will find out they hired an outside person with better qualifications, say if you want to try for a mortgage officer (vs retail loans that FSRs do).

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrain and hire people from the company for other positions.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    It all depends on the region you work in.

    Branch Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsBenefits, training, excellent support from other departments

    ConsIf you work in one of the smaller regions, there is very little to nonexistent opportunity to advance. Some of the regional managers are hated by most staff. Little recognition for jobs well done. Lots of change in technology. The pay is also considerably lower than the same work performed at a bank.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire regional managers that are good with people - giving them recognition when it is deserved.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
